2021 Duncanville offensive tackle Savion Byrd has added Texas to his growing list of offers.
Longhorns head coach Tom Herman has been on a quest in the Dallas-Fort Worth area this week. Wednesday afternoon, Herman stopped by Duncanville to check on 2020 targets four-star quarterback Ja’Quinden Jackson and four-star safety Chris Thompson Jr. In the process of visiting one of the top programs in the state, Herman awarded Byrd with an offer.

At the moment, Byrd is one of the hottest prospects in his class on the recruiting trail. In the last two weeks or so, he’s pulled in a 12 offers, with Texas joining Alabama, Arkansas, Florida State, LSU, Oklahoma, and TCU as program’s now in the mix, among others.
All totaled, Byrd owns 17 offers to date.
The 2021 cycle has already proven to be a class that will be stacked on the offensive line as far as the state of Texas goes. Now that Byrd has an offer, the Longhorns have now offered 20 sophomores up to this point. Seven of those 20 recruits are offensive linemen that hail from the Lone Star State. The 2021 class will shape out to be offensive line heavy and the Texas coaching staff is obviously fully aware of that.
At 6’4, 265 pounds, Byrd is currently unranked, per the 247Sports Composite rankings, but that will soon change.
